Angelina Jolie reportedly doesn't want Brad Pitt to be prosecuted for child abuse allegations.

The 41-year-old actress has reportedly threatened to go "radio silent" if the Fury actor - who was claimed to have mistreated his 15-year-old son Maddox after a confrontation whilst drunk on a private jet - is charged, according to TMZ.

And it has been reported the Maleficent actress - who married Brad in 2014 but has recently filed for a divorce against the Hollywood hunk - has allegedly told law enforcements she will not cooperate if a case against Brad is made.

However, it is believed the brunette beauty - who has Maddox, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight, with Brad - previously told the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family services Brad struck Maddox in the face, although it Angelina allegedly doesn't want to punish the father of her children but is focused on protecting her brood.

Other sources have come forward to claim Brad had instead supposedly lunged at Maddox, but Angelina interrupted.

Meanwhile, Angelina has been granted full custody of her children in a temporary custody deal with Brad, which will see Angelina have full physical custody of her children for three weeks until new recommendations can be settled.

According to TMZ the 52 year old will have visitation rights during the temporary period, but his initial visit must be with a therapist present. The therapist will then be able to decide whether or not the actor can visit his children unsupervised for subsequent visits.

On top of the monitored visit, the Fight Club star will also be subject to random drug and alcohol testing, although TMZ has reported his first testing came out negative for having any substances in his system.

The news comes just days after it was reported that Brad was waiting to file his response to Angelina's divorce petition until the couple had come to an agreement about the custody of their children.

A source said previously: "Lawyers are trying to work out details of the custody agreement. Brad is waiting to file a divorce response until the agreement is in place."
Angelina has requested sole physical custody and joint legal custody, but Brad is fighting for complete shared responsibility.

The 41-year-old actress has reportedly sought the help of legal professionals Bert Fields and Pierce O'Donnell - who has been named one of the 100 Most Influential Lawyers in America by the National Law Journal - to assist her in her legal battle against the 'Fury' actor, according to TMZ.

Angelina's additional entertainment lawyers, who will be led by Laura Wasser, have been recruited to ensure she reaches a settlement she wants.

The Maleficent actress - who married the Hollywood hunk in 2014 but filed for a divorce last month - has allegedly stated she doesn't want her partner to be prosecuted for child abuse allegations, and has threatened to go "radio silent" and not cooperate with law enforcements if a case against Brad is made.
